This trail runs along the edge of a 15 ha conservation area. In addition to offering stunning views of Lake Erie, the trail also provides access to McGeachy Pond, a provincially significant wetland and area of natural and scientific interest.
A viewing platform at the trail entrance allows visitors to look out over the lake and to watch the wild fowl that make their home in the region.
The trail is also an ideal place to witness the annual Monarch butterfly migration in early autumn. Located on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Erieau, the granular surface trail is ideal for hikers and cyclists.
Two other trails and a beach are located nearby, and visitors are encouraged to make the most of their day out by the shores of Lake Erie.
Directions: McGeachy Pond Conservation Area can be accessed from 17987 Erie Shore Drive in Chatham-Kent.
